A book “Realizing the Right to Development: Essays in Commemoration of 25 Years of the United Nations Declaration on the Right to Development

In commemoration of the 25th Anniversary of the United Nations Declaration on the Right to Development, this UN publication presents for the first time a wide range of in-depth analytical studies by more than 30 international experts covering the context, meaning and application of this right and its potential to shape human rights and development policy and practice.  Together they support the concept of an enabling environment for development that would ensure freedom from want and freedom from fear for all people.
